Things are so bad for Team O that chief consultant David Axelrod has started blasting the media for reporting the truth on Obama’s failed policies and the corruption of the regime.
Gone are the days when all Obama had to do to charm the news media was don a pair of blue jeans. Now the Solyndra scandal has become a Jon Stewart punchline, news outlets are joining the mockery of the the AttackWatch campaign site, and even James Carville is advising the White House to panic.
David Axelrod, clearly longing for the good old days, is now blaming the media for hyping Obama’s bad month (in a memo he released to the media):
Members of the media have focused on the president’s approval ratings as if they existed in a black box. Following the intransigence of the Republicans during the debt debate, the approval rating of the GOP brand dropped to a historic low. …
Despite what you hear in elite commentary, the president’s support among base voters and in key demographic groups has stayed strong.
You better get back in line mainstream media or no more jeans’ shots for you.
